The Covid 19 pandemic has relegated us all to the home office. For the 1-year home office anniversary, we developed the browser-based game «Alpaka». In it, Terry the pink alpaca fights its way through everyday life in the home office by jumping over obstacles, collecting «reinforcements» and fending off calls from superiors.
The game has been deliberately designed in a retro look in the style of other browser-based games, such as Chrome’s «Dino», and accompanied by an 80ies soundtrack. This to remind us of the ‹good old days› when everything was a bit more imminent. As a glimmer of hope that things will surely get better again – some day.
In the first four weeks since its release, the game was played over 70’000 times.
